Why Force-Free?

As a Crossover Trainer, Rovercome’s Founder is well-versed in all the dog training methods available today. A former self-proclaimed dog whisperer, Dana now understands that the best bonds start when we learn to listen to our dogs FIRST.


While the stopping unwanted behavior through the use of force, pain or intimidation can feel like a win in the short-term, these methods inevitably leads to even greater problems that most dog parents are ill-equipped to live with. By choosing force-free, evidence-based training methods, you are committing to giving your dog the guidance s/he needs in order to thrive.


Good behavior comes naturally to the force-free dog. And a well-behaved dog is the easiest to love and live with. Additional benefits of going force-free can include:

  • Reduced Risk

  • Strengthens Bonds

  • Increased Creativity

  • Reduced Stress

  • Improved Mental, Emotional, Physical Health

  • Healthier Relationships

  • Better Coping Skills

  • More Fun
